Whitefield, the real estate gold mine of Bangalore

Whitefield is the most sought after zone of East Bangalore named after George Whitefield, an Anglican cleric and evangelist. It remained a pleasantly, old-fashioned settlement till the late 1990s after which the Indian IT boom turned it into a major suburb and crowned as IT hub of Bangalore. It is now, one of the most important localities of the city and still growing rapidly. This suburb-turned-city, practically built by the IT revolution, is now setting the cultural tone for the rest of Bangalore. It is presently booming with residential realty and is also the epicenter of commercial real estate. According to research by Collier’s, it’s one of the top Asian cities to make it to the list. This has made it a hot-spot to all kinds of businesses; 5-star hotels, international schools, hospitals, entertainment, mega-malls and even art theatres.
